the top donors to president obama last year were colleges. the university of california gave the president a whopping $1,200,000. unbelievable. harvard university almost $700,000. so you can see that american college students are mostly caught in a liberal environment whether they like it or not. enter ryan row rotela a student north of fort lauderdale. vine mormon enrolled in a communications class taught by the vice chairman of the democratic party if you can believe it dr. deandre poole has been a democratic activist, an activist for years. yet, is he running that class. and as part of the course, dr. poole apparently ordered his students to disrespect jesus. >> he said everybody write jesus on bold letters so what i did was wrote jesus just like this. afterwards he said everybody put it on the floor. he took it out. put it on the floor and he had us all stand up once we were standing up he said stomped on it that's when i picked up the paper from the floor and put it right back on the table. any time you stomp on something it shows that you believe something has no value. so, if you we
ever before. with all of this mind, i think it's safe to say president barack obama would pose the following question he may answer it slightly different today. >> what have you accomplished? >> well, a couple of key things, i think that we've restored america's standing in the world. that's confirmed by polls. >> sean: the president may want to check the polls again, in the three plus years that have passed since he made that statement, america' standing has diminished. why? because he's been interested in playing golf with tiger, palling around with jay-z and beyonce and now four years of his presidency we're able to report for the first time our commander-in-chief has finally stepped foot in israel. welcome, mr. president. earlier today the president met face-to-face with both israeli president shimone peres and benjamin bb netanyahu and took questions from his friends in the lame stream media and did not have an explanation why he's done nothing to promote peace in the middle east. >> meeting none of these challenges will be easy, ultimately it's a hard problem. it is a har
middle east visit, and president obama is set to give a major speech to the israeli people at the top of the hour. now, ahead of that speech, palestinian militants fired two rockets into southern israel from the gaza strip earlier this morning. no one was hurt. >>> meantime, the president, who has had a difficult relationship with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu is getting different headlines. check this out from ""the washington post."" obama and netanyahu show unusual solidarity. "the daily beast," obama and netanyahu make peace. and from "the christian science monitor," a show of warmth. joining me is p.j. crowley. good to see you. >> hello, chris. good morning. >> evidence of this warming relationship came from the prime minister himself. let me play for you what he said. >> i think that people should get to know president obama the way i've gotten to know him. >> do you sense just from what you've seen over the last 24 hours or so, p.j., that this relationship is warming? if that's true, how important is it? >> well, it is important. you know, there are major strategic
. >> and president obama is weighing in, too, using his weekly radio address to push a ban on assault weapons, a limit on the size of ammunition magazines, and stepped-up background checks. >> they're supported by a majority of the american people, and i urge the senate and the house to give each of them a vote. >> still, the chief reason we're seeing so much activity right now is that gun control measures appear to be in legislative trouble. senate majority leader harry reid has frankly admitted he doesn't have the votes for a assault weapons ban and support for other legislation also appears shaky. >> it only has been three months since the newtown massacre. i mean, there was so much political support and really a rallying cry after that for stricter gun control measures. why does the political support seem so shaky right now, i guess is the question. >> well, there's two reasons. one is that time has passed. the polls have eroded somewhat. they're still generally in favor of the gun control people, depending on the poll, but not as strongly in favor. also the purpose of purple states. the

, however, is in communities across america, coast-to-coast, with barack obama's campaign, by the hundreds of people. going to community events. going to swearing-in ceremonies. going everywhere imaginable. and then establishing those real authentic contacts that no five-month campaign -- no matter how big -- is going to be able to overcome. and that's why we're committed to hiring hundreds of paid people into african-american, hispanic, and asian communities across america, even in 2013, which, for our party, doesn't really like permanent politics, is something very new. >> but is there also a messaging problem there that folks aren't liking the message that you're delivering? >> well, i think it's a matter of, you know -- it's kind of like, you know -- it's not -- our moms used to say, it's not what you say, it's how you say it. and i think it's a lot of that. now, look, one of the issues that i think really cut pretty badly within the hispanic communities, when mitt romney talked about self-deportation. you know, it's a concept that really doesn't -- it's not our party's position. but i

maimed or crippled by bush's war. in 2002 before the war began, a young state senator named barack obama came out to oppose the invasion of iraq. at a time when few politicians on the left were showing that kind of courage. when he was running for president a few years later, he promised to end the iraq war, and in 2011, he did. >> as president, i want us to fight on the right battlefield. and what that means is getting out of iraq. >> the long war in iraq will come to an end by the end of this year. across america, our servicemen and women will be reunited with their families. today, i can say that our troops in iraq will definitely be home for the holidays. >> our troops are home. the iraq war is over. but today too many republicans haven't learned the lessons of this tragedy. dick cheney himself says he has no regrets. >> it is a wartime situation. it was more important to be successful than it was to be loved. if i had to do it over again, i would do it in a minute. >> and here's what a new republican congressman, a veteran considered a rising star in the party, said just last week.

a future president, it was illinois state senator barack obama who said in 2002, i don't oppose all wars. what i am opposed to is a dumb war. this is a war that cost the lives of anywhere from 110,000 to 1 million civilians. today is not a day to cheer for success. but it is a day to remember those who fought hard to avoid the war's tragic consequences. get your cell phones out. >> michael moore was booed off the stage for denouncing the invasion of iraq. so much for these bleeding heart liberals in hollywood. let us not forget the response from around the globe. u.n. secretary annan said the war was illegal. nelson mandela called it a threat to peace. pope john paul ii said the war would not solve problems of man. jesse jackson called on peaceful people everywhere to march until the war was over. let us admire and respect the position of a former president, as well as the words from a future president, it was illinois state senator barack obama who said in 2002, i don't oppose all wars. what i am opposed to is a dumb war. this is a war that cost the lives of anywhere from 110,000 to 1 m

better. that report you're talking about highlighted how well the obama campaign did because they had workers in the swing states that practically had been living there since the 2008 campaign. >> and that perhaps is why we saw at cpac a wider diversity of types of faces speaking. 17 latinos, for instance that were on the rolls this time around. jackie, mitt romney only won 27% of the hispanic vote this time around. he lost the african-american vote and also asian americans in that round. now, in order to see a real change here, are republicans going to have to do more than stop using the language for, example, self-deportation which was used a couple times? and embrace really a wide-reaching immigration reform policy here? >> i think that's what you saw in part on this report. that was really the only policy area the report covered was immigration reform. they're also going to start pushing out their stars that are more diverse. i mean, they've already started doing it with people like marco rubio. senator scott from south carolina. they're going to try to get a lot of these leaders

made clinton, bush and obama ineligible for the presidency because of marijuana arrests. we'd have to reimagine president paul songis or president mario cuomo. now we're in kornacki land. those are not horrible options. what wants to choose a president from a list of guys who were young in the '60s and 7 os i'70 so stiff and frumpy they never tried it? arrests, for possession, not for sales, and for possession of marijuana, not harder drugs. why are we still conducting the war on drugs? criminalizing weed smokers, militarizing police and spending trillions to stop nothing. in the '70s, most criminalnolol experts concluded prison does not significantly deter crime and those with meaningful life opportunities were less likely to engage in crime regardless of the penalty, while those who went to prison were far more likely to commit crime in the future. prisons don't prevent crime. they create criminals. and america has the highest rate of incarceration in the world. what are we doing? happy monday. and now, my friend and yours, karen finney in for what's his name. don't tell me. don'

.s., the obama administration, very reluctant to get in involved. we just had gotten out of iraq, are still in afghanistan and the american people are drained. there is growing pressure on both left and right, particularly from both carl levin, and john mccain, the leading armed services republican last week, writing to the president saying, we've got to do more. we've got to stop assad from hitting his own people from the air. we've got to take out some of his air power, and we should be using military force. craig? >> nbc's andrea mitchell in amman, jordan. andrea, thank you. safe travels. >> reporter: sauthank you so mu craig. >>> and president obama is back at 1600 pennsylvania avenue after a busy four days in the middle east. he met with israeli, palestinian and jordanian leaders but did not get a happy homeum canning this morning from house intelligence chairman mike rogers. >> this has such global implications, and i really, candidly i thought the trip was a dus appointment for us. i think the president's squandered great opportunity to actually show leadership. >> reporter: and epic
me. paul, i would like to start with you. "time" magazine had the cover, from gay marriage to obama care, justice anthony kennedy is the decider. i want to show this to you. and read a portion of talking points memorandum officially there was an article posted. it said there have been two decisions in american history expanding rights for gays and lesbians. anthony kennedy wrote the opinion for both. he know where history is going and that he faces the choice between writing the next plessy versus ferguson and the next brown versus board of education. he wants to be on the right side of history. what's your response to that in. >> all of that is quite accurate except maybe where they're guessing about kennedy's mind and the right side of history. but that also sounds right to me. he did rule, he is going to be probably the deciding vote with the other justices evenly split. so which way he throws his weight will be determinative. he did decide in favor of gay rights in two previous cases. somewhat different but also somewhat the same as this. so we'll just have to wait and see about
